We are here today supporting a brave teenager who was physically assaulted by Fr. Joe Ross and is now being emotionally assaulted by Archbishop Robert Carlson. 

SNAP responds, Federal grand jury indicts Pittsburgh priest

We're grateful that a federal grand jury indicted Fr. Sorenson on charges he possessed thousands of pornographic images of young boys. Children never deserve to be treated in such a harmful way, especially with such lifelong consequences that come with being sexually abused with child porn.

SNAP Network is a GuideStar Silver Participant
